The Town of Fort Mill has announced plans for a Memorial Day ceremony on Monday morning.

The ceremony to honor those who died in the U.S. military will be held 10 a.m. May 27 in Unity Cemetery, located at 303 Tom Hall Street. It will start with a welcome and introductory message from Fort Mill Mayor Guynn Savage, followed by a reading of the names of the fallen and a ceremonial program from American Legion Post 43.

The program will include the Posting of Colors, Laying of the Wreath, Rifle Volley and Taps and Retirement of Colors, according to a press release. The ceremony will also include the National Anthem and other special music.

Town officials previously invited the public to submit names of veterans they would like to honor who died while serving in the U.S. Military.
